Overview

What makes someone a good policeman? Is it all rushing around with blue lights flashing? What is it like to face violent and drunken people on a Saturday night? How would you cope with the carnage of a fatal accident, or interviewing a suspect for a robbery? How much have police methods changed over the last 30 years? With a light touch this book gives an anecdotal insight into all this and more. We meet murder, violence, terrorism, rape, industrial disputes, robbery and public order, and everything else you can think of. Mixing humour and pathos, life and death, success and failure we are taken on a fascinating journey through the eyes of a young policeman in the 1970's.
